Irony

Domaine des Terres Dorées (Jean-Paul Brun)

Fleurie Gamay 2020

Heavenly pairing with a massive ribeye steak on the grill. So good 🤤
The nose is made with cherry, hay, a tiny bit of leather too. The palate is super well made with a great acid drive, some superb cherry notes all along, a good width, some tiny carressing tannins that bring some complexity in the rear, there is a metalic, irony touch too giving way to an expanding palate with cherry and red berries. This is great! I love this

Viña Progreso

Viognier 2019

This wine is electric! From the first waft on the nose to the splash on the palate, this wine is one of those I like to call “shiny.” It makes the insides of your nostrils tingle, the acid glands in the soft spots in the cheeks of your mouth sing, and the tips of your ears dance. It feels and smells irony like wet copper pennies and the texture is sheer as fine crystal. Bright fresh lemons yet some butterscotch warmth detected on the nose. High citric acid lights up the mouth with liquid lightening. Open for summer in your glass! — 2 years ago

Viña Tondonia Reserva Rioja Tempranillo Blend 2008

Full of life
Intense and vibrant
Quite complex
From plum to rasperry
Rhubarb to dates
Cinnamon to chestnut
Incense to licorice and quite irony
Perhaps just a touch warm at the end but hopefully it might adjust with time
Long and truly enjoyable

Tamaral

Roble Ribera del Duero Tempranillo 2018

Black pepper, an irony thing, fresh blackberries, a touch of vanilla. This is very good. The palate is well crafted : there is a great acid drive and there is matter on the side, a nice thickness and some grip, a beautiful blackberry fruit all along, some tannins kick things up in the middle. Theid palate is spherical and there is sweetness to it but then the finish starts and it's very dry, and a bit of salt and bitterness pop up in the rear. That's a great young tempranillo. I'd say one of the best I've had recently! — 2 years ago

Majella

Coonawarra Shiraz 1991

First vintage bottled by Majella says that back label. Great flavor and depth.
Earthy, irony, meaty, tobacco leaves, black pepper, potpourri and coriander.
Smooth, but not long.
12.5%
Again a nice 1991 from a producer that had not expectations at that time.

Fattoria di Fèlsina Berardenga

Fontalloro Toscana Sangiovese 2006

Huge identity
Supertuscan from Castelnuovo Berardenga made with only sangiovese
Earthy, irony, floral
Depth and softness
At peak I'd say
2006 is a spectacular vintage a bit everywhere in Italy

Domaine Alain Voge

Les Chailles Cornas Syrah 2018

Sweet, rich, slightly jammy. Black fruit galore, with a savoury, meaty, irony-bloody side to it. A tiny pinch of spice,
Elegant, rounded, juicy tannins retaining freshness. Good depth and a savoury edge which makes this so food friendly.
This is really good.

Domaine Le Roc

La Folle Noire d'Ambat Fronton Negrette 2018

There is an irony thing in the nose along with violet and rose petals and cherry and a bit of black pepper. This is the nose I fell in love with 10 years ago. The palate is very well designed with a strong acid backbone, a very nice round and radiating fruit, a bit of a sweet touch, some nice oily, scratchy tannins which kick things up for a rather long finish with that fruit, pepper and a long lasting floral aftertaste. So great. This is 7 Euro when you buy it from the winery directly and it's 15 kilometers from where I am right now 😍 — 2 years ago

Nice story. Great p/q.

Château La Grâce Dieu

Les Menuts St. Émilion Grand Cru Red Bordeaux Blend 2009

Superb nose with tar, meat juice, black currant, an irony thing. This is inviting and strong, very inviting. The palate is wonderful! Super acid backbone with a bright black currant all along, a velvety touch on the sides that remains all along, tannins have already started to integrate. There is width, there is length, there is fruit, there is grip. The finish lasts for a long time with a nice fruit, some meat juice too and a pinch of bitterness. V
In a great place right now!
